Twelve-year-old writes second self-help book

From The Telegraph:

She wrote her first self-help book at the age of nine. Now, at the grand old age of 12, Libby Rees has completed her second.

She finished At Sixes And Sevens, which helps pupils survive the move from primary to secondary school, between schoolwork, acting as a youth ambassador for the charity Save The Children and sitting on the youth board of the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service.

Libby, from Christchurch, Dorset, said: “Like my first book, I wrote it from my own experiences because I was moving from primary to secondary.

“Changing schools is a really big event. I went from a class of 20 to one of 30, which was daunting.”

Her latest guide, to be released in the New Year, is part of a three-book deal she signed with Aultbea Publishing.

Rees seems to have a good head on her shoulders, at least. Let’s hope she never has to write Didn’t You Used to Be Somebody?: What To Do When You Peak Too Soon.
